Sourced from Goolwa Pipco, South Australia’s Coorong National Park
Harvested with barefoot, brooms and brawn from remote, pristine beaches in South Australia’s Coorong National Park, these pipes are truly sustainable and tasty little morsels.
The harvesting process is rustic and basic. No mechanical mass harvesting is used, just a process known as the “pipi dance” – skilled feet and ankle wiggling in the wet sand of the shoreline to unearth the pipes which then flow into the fisher’s brooms as the waves retreat back to sea.
The fishing grounds of the Coorong National Park are so remote they are only accessible by boat or four-wheel drive vehicle. The fishery is managed under strict quota conditions which have led to the pipes achieving the independently assessed sustainable tick of approval from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
